As per reports, Apple has canceled the development of a new iPhone SE and will continue with the Qualcomm modems through 2024.
The new SE model would have marked a debut for Apple’s first in-house 5G modem. However, the company informed suppliers that the fourth-generation SE model, which was supposed to release in 2024, will not take place.
It has not disclosed the reasons for the cancellation.
Apple has been trying to work on this development for a while. According to Engadget, Apple was not fond of Qualcomm modems as it continued to choose alternatives. The company even bought the majority of Intel’s mobile modem business in 2019.
The company reportedly started working on the new development by the year 2020.
Apple has not given any official statement in this regard.
